Emma Fadlon from the KTN’s Investment Team will provide practical advice on how to prepare and write the one-page investment profile application and what other supporting collateral may be reviewed by investors when reviewing the one-page investment summaries.

Webinar recording is now available


A one-page investment summary is a handout version of your investment pitch and is a stand-alone document. Its objective is to pique the interest of potential investors and demonstrate how this opportunity aligns to the funds’ investment thesis.

For this competition the majority of the focus should be on the company investment strategy but must also be tailored to the competition brief. It should highlight the grant alignment being sought through the TFI competition.

This workshop will cover the structure and content of the investment summary and advice on how to review supporting public information to complement the investment summary.

About the TFI Investment Partnership Competition

The Transforming Foundation Industry Investor Partnership competition offers the chance for smaller UK-registered companies to access Innovate R&D project funding alongside Investor equity investment. The competition aims to support the foundation industries (cement, paper, glass, ceramics, metals and bulk chemicals) to address the resource or energy efficiency of the foundation industries or its supply chains.

Our selected Investor Partners will offer equity at least equal to the funding from Innovate, enabling companies an excellent opportunity to scale and grow at pace. This approach gives your business access to the capital investment it needs to develop and commercialise your innovations.

  • Innovate UK will offer grant funding for qualifying projects with total eligible costs of £50k to £2m. There is a total of £7m funding available from Innovate UK, which is in addition to the funding from our five Investor Partners:
    HG Ventures
    Clean Growth Fund
    Midven Ltd
    Speedinvest Industry
    Turquoise International

This is a rolling competition, with applications considered every six weeks.

Please contact ktn-uk for support with your application.

The Foundation Industries produce 28 million tonnes of materials per year in the UK, but in doing so are by far the UK’s biggest industrial polluters: around 50 million tonnes of CO2 per year, or 10% of the total CO2 emitted by UK homes and businesses. If we are to meet our Paris Climate Change Agreement to reduce our CO2 emissions by 80%, a transformational change is needed by these industries in how materials are sourced and processed, and the types of products manufactured. Developing a resource and energy efficient foundation industry will also help anchor production in the UK through increased competitiveness.

This is a rolling competition, opening April 15th, with applications considered every six weeks. You can view the competition briefing recording here.
